The oldest surviving parish school building in Edinburgh has been put on the market for £450,000.

For the past ten years the 173-year-old former Buccleuch Parish School at Meadow Lane has been used as a church – but the growing popularity of the Orthodox Church of St Andrew means it has been forced to relocate to bigger premises.

A congregation of more than 250 people featuring a mix of more than 70 nationalities, such as English, Scottish, Greek, Russian, Serbian, and Romanian, regularly meets in the former schoolhouse.
